Who is this DramaMommaSpeaks?
I’m a retired drama education curriculum author, award winning veteran drama teacher. Also, I am a very experienced, successful theater director doing both for over thirty-five years and directing over two hundred and fifty productions. See? I’m just ancient now…
I have a BFA in Theater from Stephens College where I studied acting and a MED in Creative Arts Learning, arts integration from Lesley College. I have performed professionally in the past, but spent the bulk of my career developing programs, curriculum and directing. For instance, I co-developed a national playwriting contest for youth theater plays and created several youth theater programs in Missouri and Colorado. Here’s a blog post about the contest Start a Playwriting Contest Using 20 Questions.
